Came here on a tour and perhaps it was over-hyped by the guide. Very little here that tourists might want to see or buy. Caters mostly to locals and most shops seemed low-end. Can't really recommend unless you are at a loose end.

If you have visited other street market in Korea, it is just similar. You can find clothes, accessories and many restaurants in the market. It is quite crowded during the weekend but for me, it is just similar with other markets in Korea.

A local traditional market selling local street food like tteokbokki, eomuk and kimbap that is along the BIFF Square and Jagalchi market. Go there to have some street food while shopping around BIFF Square.

It's just another market but it is interesting to just look at people's life here. There are pretty much elderly in this area. A place where you can pop by and just take a look. A little different from the markets that we have in...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Are there any Kid cafes nearby that my husband and child can go to while I shop? What vendors sell fabric ( not hanbok) ? Is there a craft section? I want to buy shell inlay supplies. I saw a photo of Sanrio posters. Is it a cafe or a store? Toy alley? Street food Alley? Can someone PLEASE post a better quality map of the market? What street is the parking on? Thank you , we are only in Busan today. What stall was the move filmed Gukje Shijang/ Ode To My Father- . It's my favorite Korean movie. I also need to buy a Barbie Hanbok

As for the cafe, lots of cafes to choose from nearby. There are so many shops that I didn't notice specificity of such goods per stall.
